I was wondering how to fix a high score issue I am experiencing. I am playing Twister http://www.pinsimdb.org/pinball/table-4961-twister and the score easily goes into the 100 millions, but when I finish the game, the high score table only shows scores in 8 digits.

Any help is appreciated.

The author probably set it up that way intentionally. Future Pinball has a limit on how high the score can go so the fix is to move the decimal to the left one or two places. I'm not familiar with Twister but I know Attack From Mars does it. It is better than getting an error.

Dang. That is very unfortunate.

Malachi666.

I don't know if you are still around but the new rev of BAM (BAM_v1.4-183) will fix this problem on the "Twister" table. Just add the following code to the script below the line that says "Option Explicit".

Code:
' xBAM.FixScore


Then you will want to change the line in the script that divides the score by 10 as follows:

Search for this line of code:
nvScore(CurrentPlayer) = nvScore(CurrentPlayer) + (points/10)

Change it to look like this:
nvScore(CurrentPlayer) = nvScore(CurrentPlayer) + (points)
